Wine and Hiking Tour through the Cinque Terre, Day Tour
Cinque Terre means “five lands” in Italian. These five lands are the villages perching along a short stretch of rugged coast in Liguria on the Italian Riviera, a terrestrial paradise suspended between land and sea. Listed by the UNESCO as a World Heritage site, the Cinque Terre are also home to some of the most delicious Italian cuisine – and wine.
Discover this truly special corner of Italy with this private wine tour! An expert guide (knowledgeable in history of art, wine, and cooking) will introduce you to some of the best the Cinque Terre has to offer.
The details of your day tour will be made to fit your wishes. When you reach the Cinque Terre, you will meet your local expert guide, and decide how you would like to shape your itinerary. Depending on your wishes and possibilities, your tour could include more intense hiking, or a gentle walk, or you could move from place to place by local train and boat service. Whatever your choice may end up being, we still recommend to be sure to wear comfortable walking/hiking shoes and comfortable clothing, and to bring protection from the sun (hat, sun screen), a light weight wind/rain jacket, and sufficient water.
Your walk/hike will pass along picturesque paths through olive groves and vineyards, and you will visit three of the five villages that make up the Cinque Terre. Some of the transfers will be by boat or local train.
Here are the details of your program:
8:30am Departure from your location in Milan by private minivan, with your English speaking guide-driver. Your picturesque drive will take you in a southerly direction to Liguria.
